Fishing Notes

Today was day two of my preparation to be a co-angler in this weekends FLW BFL two day tourney on Lake of the Ozarks. As you all know, I am just an average bass angler. However, I have the best experts on the lake that help with Bassing Bob, Wayne Fitzpatrick – Fitz Tackle, James Dill, Guide and Owner of Crock-o-Gator Baits and Jack Uxa, Jacks Guide Service – the BEST guide on Lake of the Ozarks.

So I have been practicing for whatever my boater wants to do, deep, points, bluffs, shallow, docks, etc. I am going to have to adapt and be versatile.

So today I focused on the backs of coves, brush piles and docks. In 5 hours I caught about 12 pounds of bass and lost a few good ones. My best bite today came swimming a Crock-o-Gator (COG) 1/2 oz Zapper Jig in Ozark Craw color with a COZ Swamp Bug trailer running along side docks. Not only a good keeper but lots of smaller fish, the fish just jet out from under the docks to take this bait. Also, a good keeper on the COG Head Knocker Buzz Bait fished around shallow cover and along docks. I fish many types of buzz baits, but right now the COG Head Knocker provides the exact right noise that the fish want to hit. Also, the 10″ Texas Rigged Worm worked for me today in shallow brush piles and in dark part of dock wells.
